Burnley vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Prediction and Betting Tips

Burnley vs Wolverhampton Wanderers

, KO: 19:45 Apr 2, 2024, Turf Moor
Wolverhampton Wanderers

Burnley welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to Turf Moor for a midweek Premier League fixture as they continue their quest for survival. Burnley are showing some fight lately but should still fall short against Wolves, who have claimed some major scalps on their travels this season.

Burnley showed great fight to come from behind twice and earn a 2-2 draw at Chelsea last time out in the Premier League. Having been reduced to 10 men in the first half, they fell behind twice but fought back both times thanks to goals from Josh Cullen and Dara O’Shea.

The Clarets are still in the relegation zone, three points from safety but are beginning to show some fight in recent weeks. Vincent Kompany’s men are unbeaten in their last three matches and will be keen to use Saturday’s result as a spark to salvage their season.

The problem for Burnley heading into Tuesday’s clash is that they have been unconvincing at home, with two wins at Turf Moor all season. However, one of those wins came in their previous home fixture as they claimed a 2-1 victory over Brentford.

Wolverhampton Wanderers travel to Turf Moor off the back of a 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa in their previous Premier League fixture. They had several goalscoring opportunities but lacked the cutting edge in attack.

That defeat highlights Wolves’ dip in form in recent weeks as they have now lost three of their last four matches. Gary O’Neil’s men remain in the top 10 but need to be wary of the likes of Chelsea, Fulham and Bournemouth just below them.

One positive for Wolves ahead of Tuesday’s clash is that they do have some key results on their travels that they can build on. Among their recent away results is a 4-2 victory at Chelsea and a 2-1 win at Tottenham Hotspur.

How the bookies view it

Wolverhampton Wanderers have the edge among the bookies and are priced at 7/5 by Paddy Power to claim the win. A victory for Burnley is valued at 15/8 by Betfred while William Hill is offering odds of 13/5 for a draw.

Head to head

Wolverhampton Wanderers have a 37-23 advantage with 25 draws from 85 previous matches against Burnley. Wolves have also won the last two meetings and claimed a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in December.

Players to watch

Datro Fofana is set to return for Burnley having been ineligible to face his parent club on Saturday. The striker has found the net in his last two matches and is priced at 13/5 by Unibet to maintain his scoring run.

Wolves will be boosted by the return of Matheus Cunha who had been sidelined with injury. The striker had scored five goals in six matches prior to his injury and could be worth keeping an eye on at 2/1 with Paddy Power.
